Spatial sounds can be made part of your scenes in an HoloLens app. In this lesson, learn how to incorporate those sounds and make them part of the virtual world.
- [Instructor] When our ball drops to the floor,…you see it bouncing around.…But it does so in complete silence.…This does not feel very natural.…Things falling to the floor usually make some noise.…So lets change out app so that our ball feels more lifelike.…The first thing that you need to do is get a sound file.…There are numerous sources on the internet…that have many sounds,…some royalty-free and others you have to pay for.…If you have access to the exercise files,…you can use the one we're using here as well.…
First I will create new folder in root of our access folder…called audio by right clicking,…create, folder.…Enter the name audio and press enter.…Next we need to import the file.…Just drag it from the explorer…into this newly created folder.…This will make it part of our project.…Select the new asset.…And head over to the inspector on the right.…
At the top, you see the option force to mono.…We need to check this;…after all, we will not use stereo sounds.…Nothing in the world produces stereo sounds.…Everything is always mono.…
Join instructors Dennis Vroegop and James Ashley for this introduction for HoloLens app development. They show you how to set up your development environment, including Unity and the HoloToolkit; how to deploy to HoloLens and the HoloLens emulator; and how to build apps that accept user input via gazes, tapping, and speech. Then discover how to use spatial mapping to detect your surroundings and analyze your environment with spatial understanding. Learn how to implement spatial sound that adds to the user's existing environment, and synchronize data to create shared experiences. Along the way, learn how it all comes together in two simple 3D apps: a visualization for enterprise business and a platform game.
